The twins celebrated their first birthday in style on Saturday with a family party at the house. It was a jungle theme party… Daddy even snuck some Stranglethorn Vale soundtrack into the iPod to give it some “atmosphere.” Relatives came near and far… some as far away as the Carolinas!
The twins’ Aunt Beth did a great job overseeing the bulk of the decorations and preparations, including this lovely display. The cupcakes were from Sweet Treats and they were a big hit.
The twins of course were the center of attention and they actually seemed to enjoy it. Surprisingly (or not) they didn’t smash their smash cakes with too much gusto and weren’t terribly interested in eating them either. They did of course love the presents… or more importantly, the packaging!
After tearing into cake and presents, they had a fun time seeing just how noisy their new toys were. The standout favorite seems to be the collection of ride-on car like toys. More or less able (I think) but not yet quite willing to walk, the toys allow them some mobility. (yikes!) But after an action packed day like this, they soon ran out of steam and mommy and daddy finally got some rest. One down, a whole bunch more to go!
